Thanks Mike and Neo. This is Darren at Market Analyst so thought I would post a response to some of the issues raised.

Professional Services (US$1,188 for 12 months) vs Trader Services (US$549 for 12 months)

Professional Services is mostly for institutional analysts with access to a datafeed from a Bloomberg Professional terminal. Pro Services also include:
  • advanced Relative Rotation Graphs(TM) and scanning
  • publishing module
  • Market Intelligence Charts
  • Custom Tool Programming module
  • priority customer service

After 12 months it's possible to pay monthly ($99 for Pro, $49 for Trader). End-of-day data, program updates and upgrades are included with an active subscription. Compatible realtime data providers are eSignal, IQFeed, Interactive Brokers, and OANDA.

Both versions have the inbuilt scripting language (similar to Excel) which makes it easy to create formulas for scans, backtests, alerts, and custom tools.

In regards to Volume Profile, we have a tool called Volume at Price which I think will suit your needs down to the tick.

Any other thoughts or feedback please let us know here or via our website.

Regarding the Volume at Price tool, is it part of the trial? I must be blind because I don't see it.

Hi Mike, if going through the Tools menu it's located in the Price tool group. Alternatively, right-click on the chart background and go to the wrench icon and type 'volume' in the search box and select Volume at Price from the list.

Select: Data/ Exchanges/ select the exchange you want eg NASDAQ/ intraday options/ then change the minute & tick settings to the maxium days you require

This is pretty nice. It's like Multicharts in that it seems you can plot different charts by different feeds concurrently, only instead of a per chart basis, you define it per Exchange it would seem.

Still, it looks like it might be possible to chart breadth from multiple providers concurrently because they seem to appear as their own "exchanges".

OK, little help again? @Market Analyst

Default session times seem to be wrong and are all just midnight to midnight. Is there a way to get correct defaults for all products? I see in the Data -> Exchanges the ability to override session times, but is there a way to set them on a per instrument level or a per chart level?

Hmph, just loaded 1-year of 1-minute TICK.Z and MA crashed to desktop when I right clicked on the chart. Not even a "send an error" box this time.

Perhaps someone could show me how to do a cumulative TICK?

I want to take the plot of a data series, and just sum it using an HLC/3 method (per bar). Then overlay that output alongside price.

We can start with just that simple request, then move to how to have it automatically reset per session, week, and month.

Trying to duplicate some of my existing Sierra charts.

It looks like "merge" will create a constant range (same y-axis as underlying). And "overlay" creates an independent axis.

One problem, when I tried to overlay a data series that had a different start date than the underlying, the timestamps were no longer synchronized. It only happened once, maybe it's related to the earlier crash.

Which brings me to the next question, where are the logs? Is there a debug log somewhere? I checked both ProgramData and Documents, and didn't see any type of log.

Is there a way to easily/quickly invert an overlaid plot? So for example, I want SPX.XO underlying but an inverted VIX.XO on top?

@Market Analyst, can you confirm that there is no Volume bar support? As in bar type = volume?
